BURIED BY HAIKU


I'm here
amongst the huge pile of haiku.
Can you see me?
I hope you do.

I've been buried here
and I don't know what to do.
Each time I post a poem..
it gets buried by haiku! !

    MARY...SO GLAD TO HAVE YOU BACK WHERE YOU ROCK SO WELL
    HAIKU IS THE SIMPLEST LOOKING VERSE FORM THAT REQUIRES THE MOST COMPLEX OF IMAGE CONCEPT, AS A PITCTORIAL STORY UNIQUELY
    UNFOLDS IN 17 SYLLABLES....YOUR WORK IS ESPECIALLY UNIQUE AS IT IS A HAIKU ON ITSELF...A DIAMOND CHIP EXAMPLE OF CONTEMPORARY FORM....QUITE CLEVER INDEED, MARY''''''''''''''FRANK (Report) Reply

    Mary
    First instinct-write
    you haiku, then send you shovel,
    or both in one.

    I don't particularly like Haiku, but I have to admit I wrote a boatload of them-a good focusing exercise. Thanks for the smile. Phillip Michael Sawatzky (Report) Reply

    I like your poem(I think!) . Luckily haiku are short so the digging out shouldn't require much effort, no matter how big the pile! -Rick :) (Report) Reply

    I see you Mary! This is beautiful, it made me laugh...nice rhymes. The secret is to wait until John logs out and then post your poem. Good Luck!
